RIDE A KONA

2020 DEMO TOUR

The 2020 Kona Demo Tour is here and it is massive!

We are cruising to 167 cities all over North America from February through November showcasing our most popular bikes! Whether you’re itching to try a longer travel rig or one of our latest cross-country bikes we’ve got something for you. This year we’re featuring the Process 153 CR 29, several of the Process 134 builds in both 29 and 27.5” wheels, and the all-new Hei Hei. We also have the Big Honzo ST, Honzo ST, and Libre available at various locations. With sizes ranging from XS to XL, there is something for everyone! We believe our bikes are the best, and editors and athletes from around the world agree. Come see why the Process 134 was named the Hottest Trail Bike by Mountain Bike Rider Magazine, and the Process 153 earned an Editor’s Choice award by Bicycling Magazine. We hope to see you soon!

What to bring: a valid credit card, ID, and helmet. Feel free to bring your own pedals or sample a set of Kona Wah Wah II composite pedals.

Wilson Hale

Wilson Hale

Wilson has been in the Kona family for almost a decade, from running a bike shop in Virginia to racing enduros on a Process and bikepacking the Great Divide on a Big Unit. He cut his teeth on steep Appalachian gnar, fast mid-Atlantic road racing and the travel and wrenching required for both. Van-life with a fleet of bikes and a trail dog sounded like heaven to him, so he hit the road for the Kona Demo Tour in 2018. If you've been to a demo on the east half of the continent in the last 2 years, you've talked to, probably partied, and maybe even ridden bikes with Wilson. Join him at one of our Eastern Demo Tour stops this year to have a blast and talk bikes.

Current Favorite Bikes:

  • Process 134 CR/DL 29er
  • Libre with a dropper & dynamo hub
  • Honzo ST Singlespeed

Garrett Stuart

Garrett Stuart

Garrett is new to the Kona family. Having been a lead mechanic at a premier shop in the northwest and running support services at Cascade Dirt Cups and many other race series it’s safe to say he is very capable with any service/technical issues. Garrett will be running the west coast leg of the demo tour alongside his sweet pit bull named Blue. He hopes you’ll join them at an upcoming event for a test ride, shop talk, or just to say hello.

Current Favorite Bikes:

  • Remote 160
  • Shonky with those tall bars
  • Libre
